Paw Patch Dog Park is a fenced-in, 2-acre off leash dog park located at Manatee County's Creekwood Park.  It is at 7025 44th Avenue East, Bradenton.  Drive up Creekwood Blvd to 44th Avenue East.  Turn left on 44th and the park will be on your right.         Here is a link to the Paw Patch Dog Park's website.  

Please DO NOT park any vehicles in front of our mailboxes.  The mail carrier will not deliver mail if the mail box is blocked, then you and 3 of your neighbors will not get your mail.  The mail carriers are not allowed to get out of the mail truck for normal-sized mail.

Manatee County Animal Ordinance 12-10, Sec. 2-4-11, paragraph (d) states: "The owner or custodian of a dog or cat must have direct control of such animal at all times."  This means that dogs MUST be on a leash. Please make sure your dog is not running loose.  Click here to see the entire Manatee County Animal Ordinance.  Take them to the Paw Patch Dog Park to run loose (see above).

REMINDER: Residents and contractors (lawn people, etc.) MUST NOT pour toxic or other chemicals in the gutters, down the sewers in the street, or into the lake from their back yards. It can pollute our lakes and sicken or kill the wildlife in them.  Grass clippings in the lake cause the algae and scum to thrive.
